VECTORWORKS LANDMARK VIRTUAL TRAINING
Monday, July 7 - Friday, July 11
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm ET
Virtual training offers the convenience of attending a class led by an industry expert from your own home or office. The content of this virtual, live class will be delivered in a lecture format.
The Vectorworks Landmark Virtual Training class focuses on the fundamentals within the context of the software’s specialized tools and technology. It is intended for those who are already familiar with the program and who work in landscape architecture, design, contracting, or other related design disciplines. The course will provide participants with a basic understanding of the most important aspects of 2D and 3D drawing, including essential drawing techniques, principles of file organization for common drawing types, creation of planting plans with automated plant lists, and an introduction to site modeling. Registrants can also follow along on their own computers, with progression files provided, so they can track the instructor’s keystrokes throughout the training session.
OVERALL LEARNING GOALS
Develop basic 2D/3D landscape plans and models from field notes and imported Plot Plans and DWGs, which will be used to analyze the site’s terrain and create renderings to present to a client.
Attendees must have completed the Core Concepts Training Class or have an intermediate to advanced knowledge of 3D workflows. They should also understand the listed tools, palettes, and workspace environment in Vectorworks software. This includes drawing organization structures such as layers, classes, sheet layers, and viewports, along with understanding the purpose of the following Vectorworks software palettes: Object Info palette, Basic palette, Attributes palette, Resource Browser, View bar, and the use of the heads-up display (i.e., Floating Data Display bar).
